3. Very misleading headline
the article itself quotes higher year-over year numbers across the country and even says "The rise in foreclosures started in January. RealtyTrac, another online marketplace for foreclosures, reported that 103,540 properties across the country had entered some stage of foreclosure in January, up 27 percent from the previous month and 45 percent from a year ago." 27% rise "across the country" doesnt jive with the headline , which sounds like local paper trying to make things sound worse for its readership.
